in connecticut is so much greater than the pleasure that shooting at targets with a 30-clip would give to target shooters. really it's a no brainer to me. and the shooter in the aurora theater had a clip with 100 rounds of ammunition. that's why he was able to shoot up that whole theater in two or three minutes. and there were military personnel in there. if he had just been -- if he had had to stop, they could have tackled him. they could have taken him out. >> the reason he didn't have to stop, governor, is because he had those hundred-round clips. and let's not forget, governor, in newtown one of those kids had 11 bullets in him. we're talking about some unbelievable things here. >> unbelievable evil. you're absolutely right. one of the points the congresswoman made and we should remember this is in aurora although the majority of the victims were adults, there were two 6-year-old and 7-year-old and there was one 6-month-old baby. 6-month-old baby that got killed. so this isn't the first time we've lost our kids. >> when does it end? >> when does it stop? >> and when is the legislative respon

children and teachers and others in connecticut, it is a time for congress to begin a thoughtful dialogue on what we can do to deal with these mass casualty incidences in our country. they have been going on for some time, but perhaps when we see the faces of children, principals, teachers, and others that burns upon our hearts and motivates us to take further action. i want to make sure that, mr. speaker, that congress takes the appropriate action in a thoughtful, willful, determined way, and not jump to quick conclusions as if simple fixes will prevent this from happening. first, to the parents of children across america who are asking questions, mr. speaker, i'd like to offer some of this advice and also in my background as a psychologist, it's important for people to remember this, parents should be asking their children what they have heard about the incident. we should listen to their concerns and their emotions. we should answer their questions with age appropriate information. we should support and comfort and reassure them of their safety at home and school. we should observe and
the news about the shootings in connecticut. first i heard three had died. that was bad enough, and then i heard 20 children had died. i was devastated. i have two grandchildren the same age as the children who were shot and killed in newtown, connecticut. on sunday, when i opened the newspaper to read about the shootings, i saw a photograph of one of the children who was killed. her name was emily. a little blonde-haired girl with a beautiful smile. she looked at me from the paper, i saw my granddaughter's elsa and tilly looking back at me. so i come to this issue as a grandparent whose children but for fate could have been in the same situation as the children in newtown. and come to this as a member of congress. you know the people back home in just about every district keep asking us why it is that we can't get anything done here. well, i'm a newcomer. i've only been here about five months, and i know what is going on in terms of the political gamesmanship. this is an issue on which political games have to stop. we should have members of the republican caucus standing with us today and

elementary school in newtown, connecticut, takes priority with me and makes this so-called fiscal cliff look like a mole hill. we are at odds are around here about money while all around us, unnecessary gods are proliferating in communities across our nation, and mental need -- mental health needs are not being met, in helping our society to crumble while we are sitting here mumbling around about whether or not we are going to hold hands and jump off a fiscal cliff, as serious as that is, and the consequences would be for a number of things. not only are we talking about america, we are talking about the world when we fail to do things we need to do. but for the moment, the issue of the day has to do with an adequate discussion on talks of the american people about just what we need to do regarding this measure. we cannot do everything, and i know that. we cannot stop evil and violence by educating everything, but in my judgment we can and we must do something. failure to do that is a helluva lot more important to me than whether the president and john boehner jump off a fiscal cliff. >> it

the horrific school shooting in newtown, connecticut. but are more guns in our schools really the answer? "outfront" tonight, ryan, political analyst, roland martin. good to see you. is this just playing up to the nra or a plausible solution? >> it's certain ly not a plausible solution, but the problem is, there are no plausible solutions. there's a guy, a criminalnologist who wrote a great piece about this. the thing with mass shootings, these guys are well prepared. and so, the idea from the right that you're dpoipg going to arm politician official, have them at every school is false and the idea on the left that you're going to eliminate guns, that's also false. you have to look at the gun violence problem more broadly rather than fighting the last war. >> but there is a disconnect in this conversation. the quote from frank lutz. here's what he had to say about the nra's propos. >> the public wants guns out of the schools, not in and they're not asking for a security official or someone else. i don't think the nra is listening. i don't think they understand. most americans would prote

in newtown connecticut to avoid such events in the future. like most americans, we were shocked by what happened. like all americans, we've been discussing all of the various options that are available to protect our children. and at this point we would like to share our thinking with you. and for that purpose i'd like to introduce wayne lapierre, our executive vice president. thank you for being with us. at the end of this conference we will not be taking questions but next week we will be available to any of you who are interested in talking about these or other issues of interest to you so contact us at that point. thank you very much. wayne. >> good morning. the national rifle association, 4 million mothers, father's, sons and daughters join the nation in horror, outrage, grief and earnest prayer for the families of newtown, connecticut who have suffered such an incomprehensible loss as a result of this unspeakable crime. out of respect for the families and until the facts are known, the n.r.a. has refrained from comment. while some have tried to exploit tragedy for political gain,
